The Governance Analysis Tool™ is based on our proprietary Corporate Governance Framework ™ - a comprehensive structure canvassing board views across the breadth of corporate governance.
The framework is categorised into four distinct areas or quadrants:

Using the framework, our current service includes options for:
- Commercial Unlisted (Pty Ltd/Public Unlisted)

We also have reviews suitable for:

- Superannuation entitities
- Board Committees
Should your governance review need to achieve specific outcomes, we can create a review in line with your needs. For more information, please visit our Contacts tab or contact our National Office.
The Different Forms
The Tool has been adapted to allow for differing levels of granularity and insight. It is possible for a review to cover the entire framework as a “light-touch”, or in depth; or to target particular aspects of it.
Each of the different forms of the tool offers boards varying scope as well as supporting governance learning and development. Whether a board has a particular challenge area, or is looking to benchmark its performance year-on-year, there are many scenarios that the Tool can cater for and offer support for.
All boards differ in their approach to reviews and evaluations. Whether it is an initial 'yardstick' for the board, or a more detailed and comprehensive review, the Governance Analysis Tool™ offers solutions to meet your specific needs.
Once underway, statements are provided to each board member via a confidential online survey asking members to assess, in their view, the effectiveness of their organisation's governance against these statements of good practice. Individual results are collated, analysed and provided back to the board in report form. Key to the Report are the heat map and the spider graph. Boards are then offered the option of undertaking a facilitated discussion session to explore the findings in greater detail.
Simple and straightforward, the process includes:
- A chair and board briefing on the review
- Secure and confidential online survey for each director to complete
- A written Report reflecting your board’s collective response drawn from analysis and collated by a governance expert
- A one-on-one discussion with the chair to detail the findings (optional)
- A fully facilitated 60 minute session facilitated session with the board (optional)
The process is led by a Company Directors’ representative.
